Trump is a danger to the world

In response to a recent letter, I could not let it go unanswered. The writer took offense that President Donald Trump has been called incompetent, etc., by Obama supporters. He is called this by many more than Obama supporters.

US does not have a gun problem

The facts in a recent letter about the Second Amendment were grossly incorrect. The real discussion should be about murder statistics. According to World Health Organization statistics, 109 countries have higher per capita murder rates than the United States. It is illegal to own a gun in all of those countries. Only the criminals have guns and they aren’t afraid to use them.

GOP tax plan saves me $6,500

In a recent letter to the editor, a gentleman claimed his taxes will go up by $6,000 if the proposed tax reform bill is passed. Following his advice, I recalculated my return and discovered that with the overall lowered tax brackets, I will save over $6,500 on the House version and over $2,500 on the Senate version.

Push for better plan for Whitehall in Beaufort

I have been working with citizens of the city of Beaufort and Beaufort County in an effort consisting of the islands east of downtown, to help develop what we believe is a better plan to the development concept that was presented to the city by MidCity Partners of Atlanta, for the waterfront property on Lady’s Island known as Whitehall Point. Their plan entailed a complex of apartments, an independent living wing, and commercial offices, all crammed into 19 acres of historic and environmentally-sensitive land at the foot of Woods Memorial Bridge.

‘Time out’ for our toddler president

The “Dear Leader” of North Korea is a toddler with a terminal case of the terrible two’s. Historically, America has been the adult in the world of international politics. When toddlers acted up, the adult (USA) handled them … it did not shoot them. Sadly, we now have our own toddler in the White House. Hopefully, the remaining adults in the United States government will step forward and put that toddler in “time out.”
